    Property description
    Volterra
    |
    Condo/Apartment – 
    4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
    Sleeps 10. Very spacious and beautifully furnished, on two floors joined by a spiral staircase. A relaxing getaway away from the tourist hordes, but also within easy reach of the treasures of Florence, Siena and Pisa. Seaside is forty minutes' drive. Ideal for walking or for hardy bikers who like challenging hills!

    Standing on a small hillock immediately off the road, Tuscan Skies has magnificent views all round. To one side, Volterra 'city of magic and mystery' stands on top of one side of the valley, while ancient Montecatini Val di Cecina sits on the other.

    Tuscan Skies was built as two separate apartments which we have joined as one property. As a result, there is ample, airy space for our guests to relax and enjoy themselves. Guests always comment on the high qua...

I was attracted to the property because of the location - near Volterra - and the excellent rates for the property. We also wanted to rent a property with a nice pool area and air conditioning so I was a little disappointed to get more info after paying my deposit that said only parts of the property were air conditioned... more

Myself and my extended family (7 adults, 3 children) spent a very plesant week in Tuscan Skies villa. From the moment of booking Chris was extremely helpful and this helpfulness continued in Italy with his Kiwi Representative Jill, who couldn't do enough to help. The villa has everything you need for a self catering holiday, or if like us, you... more
